Help with Arachnophobia in Derby
Do you have an irrational fear of spiders and therefore looking for help with Arachnophobia in Derby ? This phobia is probably the most common, affecting as many as 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men. The sight of a spider can trigger a fear response, but in some cases, simply an image of an arachnid or the thought of a spider can lead to feelings of overwhelming fear and panic.
Interestingly there are around 35,000 different types of Spiders and probably only around 10 that can cause harm to humans. So generally it’s a fairly irrational fear. If you’re a sufferer of this type of phobia, as you’re aware it can cause much panic and upset within the household – and of course in life generally. Another side effect of this is that it can give your children the same fear by them seeing you terrified in this way.
Many years ago I had a lady attend my clinic looking for help with Arachnophobia in Derby. Rather than do a “one off” session which will work on some types of phobia (eg. fear of flying) I actually did around 5 sessions to get to the root cause of the problem. It stemmed from an incident when she was a child when in the garage at home and found a massive spider on the saddle of her bike. Now bear in mind the lady was so scared of spiders that she would leave her 10 month old daughter on her own if there was a spider found in the same room and wouldn’t return til the spider was gone. She rang me a week after therapy had finished to say she was at the local Zoo and had a Tarantula on her hand !
